Soldaderas to Amazonas: Escaramuzas Charras

The National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame opens its newest exhibition, Soldaderas to Amazonas: Escaramuzas Charras, to the public on March 22.
About the exhibition: The escaramuza charra consists of an eight-member team of equestrians executing intricate patterns at a gallop. The exhibition consists of two complementing, connecting galleries which explore the relationships between the soldaderas of the Mexican Revolution and escaramuza charra. The first gallery examines those connections concretely with adelita-inspired dresses for which they are known, the sombreros, rebozos, sidesaddles and more. The second gallery comprises a series of portraits, Escaramuza, The Poetics of Home, by award-winning photographer Constance Jaeggi. Jaeggi’s portraits are accompanied by original works from 2023 Texas Poet Laureate Ire’ne Lara Silva, and Angelina Sáenz, award-winning educator, poet and writing project fellow at UCLA. Soldaderas to Amazonas: Escaramuzas Charras will be on display from March 22, 2024, until December 31, 2024.
